The multidisciplinary team provides a community based rehabilitation service for people with severe and enduring mental illness who are resident in Hackney.
Interventions may include a combination of medication, psychological therapies, the promotion of social networks, vocational, occupational and employment activities. The team works with service users at their own pace to enable them to achieve a desired level of independence.
The team consists of care coordinators (social workers, CMHNs, occupational therapists), psychosocial intervention worker, psychologist, psychiatrists and support workers.
The team manages both male and female beds on Ruth Seifert Ward – City & Hackney Centre for Mental Health. CRRT also runs an 8 bedded rehabilitative supported accommodation in conjunction with Look Ahead Care and Support.
The team provides Early Move On (EMO) assessments and follow up for long stay hospital admissions. It also provides an annual placement review service for all service users residing in Hackney funded placements.
